This view shows the SSW flank of Tres Vírgenes in Baja California. Much of the volcano consists of lava domes and viscous lava flows. The hills on the flanks are rhyodacite lava flows associated with a Plinian eruption. The aligned flat-topped terraces on the plain are underlain by basaltic andesitic lava flows of Tertiary age.
